We hope you’ll join the North Carolina Soybean Producers Association in celebrating agriculture, North Carolina’s top industry, at N.C.State University’s Ag Day football game vs. Louisville on Oct. 1, 2015. Festivities include the 24th annual CALS Tailgate event in PNC Arena prior to kick-off and family-friendly interactive sponsor exhibits, agriculture machinery displays and photo opportunities in Fan Zone. Throughout the course of the game, individuals involved in the North Carolina agriculture industry will be featured in video board segments. During the game, two undergraduate students will be recognized on field as the inaugural recipients of the Ag Day Scholarships.
“The agriculture industry plays a significant role in the state of North Carolina and we are proud to honor this industry once again this year,” said NC State Head Football Coach Dave Doeren. “Ag Day has become one of our signature events and I expect it to be even bigger this season.”
The Ag Day weekend will begin on Thursday, Oct. 1, with a student event on campus. Making its debut on Oct. 1 is an Ag Day kickoff for students, to be held at Wolf Plaza near the Talley Student Center on campus. The event will feature complimentary Howling Cow ice cream, and there will be a pre-release of the official Ag Day T-shirts. Events continue on Friday, Oct. 2, with a N.C. State College of Agriculture & Life Sciences (CALS) networking event and annual Alumni Awards ceremony.
We look forward to seeing you in Raleigh as we recognize farmers and farming!
